“New Item”, “Title field value.” and similar texts appear in view and edit forms instead of real values

July 8, 2011

Problem:
In a standard SharePoint list the View Item and the Edit Item forms open but the New Item text appears in the header of the form.
Where the values of the different fields should appear, the “fieldname field value.” text is shown, such as “Title field value.” for the Title field.

Solution:
In our case the URL was corrupted (by a custom developed module) and the value of the ID querystring attribute was replaced with some invalid value. So check that the querystring is correct and the ID contains the real ID of the listitem.
